Find the next three terms in the number pattern.0, 3, 7, 12, ____, ____, ____
Correct Answer
D. 18, 25, 33
Explanation
The pattern in the given number sequence is that each term is obtained by adding consecutive odd numbers to the previous term. Starting with 0, we add 1 to get 3, then add 2 to get 7, and so on. Therefore, the next three terms in the pattern would be obtained by adding 3, 4, and 5 to the previous term, which is 12. This gives us 12 + 3 = 15, 15 + 4 = 19, and 19 + 5 = 24. Hence, the correct answer is 18, 25, 33.

Of twenty-eight students, four read both The Red Pony and The Hobbit. Fifteen read the first book, but not the second. Five students read neither book. How many read only The Hobbit?
Correct Answer
C. 4 students
Explanation
There are a total of 28 students. Out of these, 4 students read both The Red Pony and The Hobbit. 15 students read the first book but not the second. 5 students read neither book. To find the number of students who read only The Hobbit, we subtract the students who read both books and the students who read only the first book from the total number of students. Therefore, the answer is 4 students.

Use mental math to solve k - 4 = 9.
Correct Answer
C. 13
Explanation
To solve the equation k - 4 = 9 using mental math, we need to isolate the variable k. Adding 4 to both sides of the equation, we get k = 13. Therefore, the correct answer is 13.
6.
In which equation is the value of y the same as in the equation y + 19 = 39.
Correct Answer
C. 39 - 19 = y
Explanation
The equation 39 - 19 = y is the same as y + 19 = 39 because they both represent the same mathematical operation of subtracting 19 from 39 to find the value of y.
7.
Which is the value of 64 - 4 x (2 + 13)?
Correct Answer
A. 4
Explanation
To solve the given expression, we first perform the operation inside the parentheses: 2 + 13 = 15. Then, we multiply this sum by 4: 4 x 15 = 60. Finally, we subtract 60 from 64: 64 - 60 = 4. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.
8.
Use mental math to evaluate 4x - 9 for x = 6.
Correct Answer
B. 15
Explanation
To evaluate 4x - 9 for x = 6, we substitute x with 6 in the expression. Therefore, 4(6) - 9 = 24 - 9 = 15.
